1999 Toyota Estima Lucida 2.2 from UK and Ireland
I will miss driving it, but I can't afford to fix it any more
Head went. I replaced it and the radiator also. Then the turbo went and I had run out of money, so I couldn't fix it.
Good car all round. No one has them for scrap, so all the parts have to be bought new, so I can't afford to keep it any more. Can anyone tell me, is the turbo under the head, or is it easy to get at?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I can't offer any technical advice on these, but I know there's quite a few in New Zealand that were imported used from Japan like yours may have been. You could try contacting auto dismantlers/breakers there to see if they can send you the parts you need; even with postage it would probably be cheaper than buying new.
